As LeBron James retold the tale of his hook shot that beat the Brooklyn Nets Saturday night, he remembered poor Brook Lopez. Lopez, the Nets’ 7-footer and leading scorer in the game, was the defender rendered helpless by James’ Magic Johnson impression. James floated his running, baby hook with 1.9 seconds left over Johnson that forged a 90-88 victory for the Cavs. “Brook, he did not think in his wildest years that I was gonna shoot that one,” James said.
James’ response to Love’s benching was crucial. After all, at shootaround Friday Love said, “In a lot of ways before you can lead a game, you’ve got to learn to follow. If there’s going to be anyone in the league you’re going to do that with it’s going to be LeBron.” James was diplomatic. He credited Love for how he played when he was in there. He credited Blatt for having a “good feel for the game” in his substitution patterns. And he credited the Cavs’ fourth-quarter lineup that had him paired with J.R. Smith, Matthew Dellavedova, Tristan Thompson and Richard Jefferson for virtually the entire period for finishing the job.
